Phenotyping and automation for plants and seeds

Phenotyping & Automation for Agriculture

High Throughput Plant Phenotyping (HTPP) methods have emerged over the last decade as a response to “bottleneck” in crop improvement, whereby rapidly accumulating genomic data was underutilized because of a lack of methods to measure plant growth and yield in different environments quickly and non-invasively.

More recently, opportunities to increase the efficiency of farming have been recognized by entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, leading to the development of software and robotic solutions to the challenges of data-based decision making and farm labor shortages.
